Wings of silver. Wings of blue. Mortal heart. Broken dreams. Shatter. Shatter. Shatter. A sundering. A grave. I see the end. I see. . .
The world is in chaos as the power surge of the Cascade rises to a devastating crescendo. In furiously resisting its attempts to turn Elena into a vessel for Raphael’s power, Elena and her archangel are irrevocably changed. . .far beyond the prophecy of a cursed Ancient.
At the same time, violent and eerie events around the world threaten to wipe out entire populations. And in the Archangel Lijuan’s former territory, an unnatural fog weaves through the land, leaving only a bone-chilling silence in its wake. Soon it becomes clear that even the archangels are not immune to this deadly evil. This time, even the combined power of the Cadre may not be enough. . .
This war could end them all.
Warning! Mild spoilers below.
All I have to say is, this is the best installment of the Guild Hunter series ever!
Nalini Singh really gave everything she had into writing Archangel’s War!
Archangel’s War starts off with Raphael waking up and Elena emerging from the chrysalis. We also learn whether or not Elena is still the same old Elena or if she has changed into something different and boy what an answer we receive. However, there is still the Cascade in affect and is still out of control with its earthquakes, storms, and floods. Not only that but the Cascade is not letting certain powerful beings sleep forcing them to awake once again. Worst of all, certain actions and problems seem to be coming from China which means war with Lijuan will happen whether the Cadre want it or not.
Overall, like I said Archangel’s War was from beginning to end full of action! It had everything we could want from Nalini Singh! This installment had so many plots that in the end all came together which was nicely done. We also get to learn more about the past of side characters like Illium and his mother, Sharine. I have to admit it was surprising but at the same time it explained a lot. There’s also plenty of battle scenes once we reach to the climax that will leave you glued to you book because of how intense they are. With the end of Archangel’s War, it looks likeNalini Singh is ready to enter the next part of the series and it was wonderful she used the love story between Elena and Raphael to end the first part. Now I look forward to the next stage she has prepared for us in this beautiful world she has created.
